I Am Seattle Children's

We Are Seattle Children’s: Research Discovery Guild

Research Discovery Guild

Research Discovery Guild members volunteer at the 2014 Seattle Urban Trek fundraiser.

Every day at Seattle Children’s Research Institute, more than 1,100 investigators and staff members work to accelerate discoveries that will change and save the lives of kids both today and in the future. In the spring of 2013, eight research institute staff members decided to support children’s health in yet another way – by fundraising! Staff members founded the Research Discovery Guild in May 2013 and since then have hosted bake sales, organized a membership drive and volunteered at other Children’s fundraisers. Guild members decided to raise money for the Research Discovery Fund, which supports the greatest needs of the research institute.

“I believe in the mission of Seattle Children’s Research Institute and want to help,” says Sean Poppoff, a founding member of the guild. “It’s also been rewarding to see my coworkers make their own contributions, whether financially or with some truly amazing idea to raise funds or awareness. I look forward to years of giving back through our guild.”
